    Yelle At The Ballroom At Outer Space

              It's hard to believe that there are new frontiers of self-revelation and candor for today's pop stars, given that celebrity culture is now so much about exposing parts of one's life, either as a function of the work that an artist does, or in the process of promoting that work and allowing the...
